Celine Dion Takes a Break From Career to Care for Her Sick Husband

The 'Water and a Flame' singer will take care of her hubby who has been battling cancer while recovering from her own illness caused by inflammation in her throat muscles.

Celine Dion is stepping away from the spotlight. It's announced on her official website that the singer has decided to postpone all of her show business activities indefinitely, in order to focus 100% of her attention on her husband Rene, their family, and associated health issues.

Since Rene's surgery last December to remove a cancerous tumor, it's been a very difficult and stressful time for the couple as they deal with the day-to-day challenges of fighting this disease while trying to juggle a very active show business schedule, and raise their three young children.

The Canadian singer herself has also been fighting an illness that has caused inflammation in her throat muscles, and has not been able to perform any of her scheduled shows in Las Vegas since her last show on July 29. She has still not recovered from this condition.

"I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband's healing, and to do so, it's important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children. I also want to apologize to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support," she said.

During this hiatus, Celine will cancel her shows at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace until further notice. She will also cancel her tour of Asia, previously scheduled for the fall of this year. She and her family have requested that their privacy be respected at this time.
